Planets capable of supporting life could start out as gaseous worlds similar to Neptune, only to be transformed by the combination of two phenomena that individually can inhibit their potential habitability, University of Washington astronomers have discovered in a new study.

While some astronomers are looking for the existence of planets light years away from Earth, a team of Spanish researchers has suggested there could be at least two planets that have yet to be discovered in our very own Solar System.
This acquisition is a key add to Neptune Benson’s superior filtration and disinfection product lines further promoting the Neptune Benson commitment to bring the most energy efficient, sustainable

Otto Wilhelm von Struve (May 7, 1819 "“ April 14, 1905) was a Russian astronomer of Baltic German descent. He is one of many renowned astronomers in his family. Struve was born the son of Friedrich Georg Wilhelm von Struve, in Tartu, Estonia. He had two sons, Hermann and Ludwig Struve. Otto Willhelm von Struve assisted his director father at the Pulkovo Observatory and succeeded him as director until 1889. He also continued his father's footsteps in discovering double...
Retrograde Motion -- Retrograde motion is the orbital motion of a body in a direction opposite that which is normal to spatial bodies within a given system. 'Retrograde' derives from the Latin words retro, backwards, and gradus, step. In the Solar system, mostly everything rotates in the same sense: all major planets orbit the Sun counterclockwise as seen from the pole star (Polaris). Most planets spin in the same sense, including Earth. The same happens with the orbital motions of the...
Planet -- A planet is a body of considerable mass that orbits a star and that doesn't produce energy through nuclear fusion. Until recently, only nine were known (all of them in our own Solar system). As of the end of 2002 over 100 are known, with all of the new discoveries being extrasolar planets. Astronomers often call asteroids minor planets, and call the larger planetary bodies (those which are commonly called planets) major planets. Planets within the solar system can be...
Gas Giant -- A gas giant is a generic astronomical term invented by the science fiction writer James Blish to describe any large planet that is not composed mostly of rock or other solid matter. Gas giants may still have a solid core - in fact, it is expected that such a core is probably required for a gas giant to form - but the majority of its mass is in the form of gas (or gas compressed into a liquid state). Unlike rocky planets, gas giants do not have a well-defined surface. There...
The Solar System refers to the area in space that is dominated by our own Sun. It is comprised of the Sun and its associated astronomical objects that are held in its gravitational orbit. The Solar System was formed as a result of the collapse of a giant molecular cloud approximately 4.6 billion years ago. The mass of this system is located almost entirely in the Sun. Apart from the Sun, a high percentage of the remainder of the system’s mass is located in the eight solitary planets that...
